Alomar wins managerial debut, Indians beat Royals

Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Sandy Alomar Jr. won his first game as Indians manager as Jason Kipnis drove in three runs and Cleveland beat Kansas City 8-5 on Friday night, handing the Royals their sixth straight loss.

Alomar, one of the most popular players in franchise history, went from bench coach to interim manager when Manny Acta was fired Thursday.

David Huff (3-0) gave up three runs over six innings as Cleveland got its first 3-game winning streak since July 3-5. Chris Perez closed Cleveland's fourth win in five games for his 39th save in 43 chances.

Cleveland had 16 hits, including a string of 5 straight with one out to score three runs off Will Smith (6-9) in the second inning.
